We can all take a page from Dr. Jill Biden's book. Whether she's touring on President Biden's behalf or grading papers for her students, she never seems to quit.
The First Lady discusses it all—her new role, hectic schedule, and second go-around in the White House—in Vogue's upcoming August issue, which hits newsstands on July 20. According to a sneak peek sampling from Good Morning America, she stuns in a gorgeous navy floral dress on the cover (no surprise, considering her summer wedges and powder blue two-piece have been recent hits), we can't help but admire her determination above all. (But we'll still take a lookalike dress if there's one available.)
In the interview, Dr. Biden reacts to naysayers who doubted her ability to continue teaching while assuming the role as First Lady. A handful of virtual classes, international gatherings, and speeches later, she's proven everyone wrong.
‘I heard that all the time during the campaign. 'No. You’re not going to be able to teach as first lady.’ And I said, ‘Why not? You make things happen, right,” Dr. Biden said to Vogue, according to GMA.

Despite all that she's expected to handle, she insists that focusing and "staying centered" are the keys to getting things done. It also seems to be the reason she's able to tackle so much—just several days ago, she teamed up with the Giants' former coach Tom Coughlin (despite team rivalries) to host a trivia night for pediatric cancer patients and their families, according to People.
Plus, she's planning ahead. Reuters (opens in new tab) reports that President Biden said his wife might attend the Olympics Opening Ceremony on July 23 on the country's behalf.
Arguably the most upsetting downside to such a tight schedule is the lack of downtime Dr. Biden is able to take with her husband. Before returning to the White House in 2021, the two used to take local trips to bed and breakfasts in Delaware to work in some downtime with one another.
